The ArrayList object is a collection of items containing a single data value.

Items are added to the ArrayList with the Add() method.

The following code creates a new ArrayList object named mycountries and four items are added:

<script runat="server">
Sub Page_Load
if Not Page.IsPostBack then
dim mycountries=New ArrayList
mycountries.Add("Norway")
mycountries.Add("Sweden")
mycountries.Add("France")
mycountries.Add("Italy")
end if
end sub
</script>

By default, an ArrayList object contains 16 entries. An ArrayList can be sized to its final size with the TrimToSize() method:
<script runat="server">
Sub Page_Load
if Not Page.IsPostBack then
dim mycountries=New ArrayList
mycountries.Add("Norway")
mycountries.Add("Sweden")
mycountries.Add("France")
mycountries.Add("Italy")
mycountries.TrimToSize()
end if
end sub
</script>

An ArrayList can also be sorted alphabetically or numerically with the Sort() method:
<script runat="server">
Sub Page_Load
if Not Page.IsPostBack then
dim mycountries=New ArrayList
mycountries.Add("Norway")
mycountries.Add("Sweden")
mycountries.Add("France")
mycountries.Add("Italy")
mycountries.TrimToSize()
mycountries.Sort()
end if
end sub
</script>

To sort in reverse order, apply the Reverse() method after the Sort() method:
<script runat="server">
Sub Page_Load
if Not Page.IsPostBack then
dim mycountries=New ArrayList
mycountries.Add("Norway")
mycountries.Add("Sweden")
mycountries.Add("France")
mycountries.Add("Italy")
mycountries.TrimToSize()
mycountries.Sort()
mycountries.Reverse()
end if
end sub
</script>
